Kyphosis/Thoracic Outlet Syndrome related - sudden onset pulsatile tinnitus

Posted , 4 users are following.


I am an otherwise healthy 33 year old now. I was wondering if anyone here has had some experience with a pulsatile tinnitus (hearing blood flow sound in your ears) with regard to having posture-related issues, thoracic outlet syndrome/kyphosis (forward curvature of the spine). A doctor at UCLA Medical Center for Vascular Surgery diagnosed me with this issue related to Thoracic Outlet Syndrome with MRI/MRA/MRV. Mine began about 8-9 years ago. This doctor also told me the cause of it was the kyphosis. Just shortly after I felt my back change and move forward is when it all started, in addition I have TMJ issues (jaw dysfunction) if anyone here has found a cure for an onset of pulsatile tinnitus related to any of the above issues please let me know what sort of treatment occurred for you, and where you found help.
